lols... I have my moments... made a conscious decision a few years ago that I was going to spend as much time with them as possible in their school years having worked hard and played hard whilst they were babes... so now I make sure I drop them at school and pick them up... coach the boys soccer team... take them to whatever after school activity they do and take them out of a school holidays and on w/es

we have our house set up for entertaining and if theres any sleep overs we want them at our house because we want our kids to be bringing their friends home to our place in years to come and not want to go round someone elses place. This is twofold... we know where they are, who they are with and what trouble they are getting into AND also we want the enjoyment of watching them grow up with their friends and not round some other parents house... :)

Wow, that's great!! Neither of my parents were around when I was a kid. Well, Mum taught part time and dad worked in the bank full time, but I always bussed it to and from school and to friends houses etc etc.. I spent days on end staying at my best friend Nikki's place because I envied how close her family was and they all loved me and accepted me into their family!!! I'm a lot closer to Mum now though, because she got sick 5 years ago which was really scary.. Really makes you realise how easy it is to lose them!!! Still not close to dad at all, he's just someone who lives in my house!!!
Your kids will definitely appreciate having such thoughtful parents :)

I'm sorry to hear that Emma... I was brought up by caring parents that were there for me and so was my wife so I guess it comes instinctively... I lost my mum to cancer six years ago and since she has left the extended family has gone to pot! She would be SO mad... my dads remarried (hey thats good.. no doubt the silly old bugger would have drunk himself to death had he not :wink: ) his wife is ok... I get on alrite with her though some of the other family doesn't and my brother and sister and their families (who have teenage and early 20's kids - with all the drama they can cause lols) have just drifted apart... and have now got differences that just will never be resolved *sigh* its no big deal thats life but I know what you mean AND my wife and I are determined that won't happen with us... not till they grow up and have adult kids anyway lols

Oh it's not like I had a bad childhood or anything like that!! My childhood was perfectly normal, and hey, I got to live in the UK for 9 months!!!

Yeesh, sounds like the extended family has broken up a bit, that's sad :( Your kids have been brought up with good family values, so they'll be great as parents too :)

wasn't meaning otherwise Em... just using my own family as an example of how things can suddenly change... just don't want mine to be the same.. :)
